Wireless NIC Problem

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
I just got an older computer running with an AMD K-6 500 MHz.  The
network card that came with the computer was connected via PCI and had
a little wire that ran directly to the motherboard.  I've never seen
this before.  When I tried to swap it with my Wi-Fi PCI card the
computer wouldn't boot.  When I take it out though it works fine.  Any
ideas on whats going on?

Thank You,

Wake-on-lan cable, older boards didn't have fully
implemented PCI event wake up so a cable was used if the
feature was desired- most people don't use it and the cable
is not needed in that case.

Wifi card isn't compatible, or is damaged.
